The Wit And Wisdom Of Dr Mahathir Mohamad

Malaysia s longest-serving and most outspoken prime minister, Dr Mahathir
Mohamad has been politically active for more than 60 years. As a young
doctor he agitated for independence from the British and promoted the
rights of the Malays, and his long political career culminated in his
22-year term as prime minister during which Malaysia s rapid development,
his forthright words and singular policies thrust the country into the eyes
of the world. Throughout his career, Dr Mahathir has spoken and written in
a frank and uncompromising manner and he has continued to do so since
retiring from the premiership in 2003; he remains a controversial figure to
this day. The Wit and Wisdom of Dr Mahathir Mohamad is a collection of
nearly 600 quotations spanning his time in government and beyond. The
quotations are arranged by topic, including those as varied as leadership,
race relations, the media, economics and development, colonialism,
international relations including Israel and Palestine, and Malaysia
